USA - February 10th, 2011

Snow dusts the northeastern United States of America and highlights the ridges of the Appalachian Mountains (upper left). The light color of the snow also makes it easy to spot rivers crossing the landscape, including the Susquehanna River (center) and the Delaware River (right of the former)

In the thumbnail image, parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland are snow covered, while Virginia is mostly snow free. The full image stretches northward across New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, all of which are blanketed in snow.
